The dust has settled. The endless speculation will be finally pushed to the side. Tonight finally, both the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat will open the season at TD Garden at 7:30 P.M. in what undoubtedly has to be considered one of the most anticipated matchups in NBA history.
We will have you covered all day long here at CelticsHub as well as tonight live from press row at the Garden. We kick off our coverage today though by bringing in frequent CelticsHub podcast contributor and “international expert” Rich Keefe, who is also a reporter at 98.5 The Sports Hub here in Boston and co-author of The Sports Brief to break down the C’s opening night matchup.
How will Miami respond to such a hostile atmosphere in Boston? Will the Heat’s new trio have enough chemistry to take down a seasoned Celtic squad? Will Shaquille O’Neal be able to hang tough defensively when being attacked by an incredibly athletic Miami starting five? What can we expect out of the C’s new additions? And is this the most anticipated regular season games in NBA history? Rich and I break it all down in the podcast.
